While vacationing this weekend, we met a 5 year old Ruby who was just diagnosed with Leukemia and given only a month to live. :( :(

Has anyone heard of this in Cavaliers? I gave his owner this site address, I'm hoping she'll visit and hopefuly find support with someone who has dealt with this as well.

My friends' Springer just died from leukemia, Sophie was just seven. :(

It was about 3 weeks from diagnosis to pts., nothing could be done.

We stopped using lawn chemicals altogether several years ago! I've read about a connection between childhood leukemia and lawn chemicals. I'm assuming pets and wildlife would be affected in the same ways.

My parents lost a cat to it once.
